Wood Hall is an historic building and gardens sitting on the border of the Lake District National Park, with an incomparable position on a south-facing hillside with a sensational panoramic view of Skiddaw, Grassmoor and the Lorton and Buttermere valleys.

Wood Hall can sleep eighteen people, and has just been renovated to an exceptionally high standard. This dog friendly luxury self catering accommodation is ideal for rent for families, walkers or anyone wishing to visit this most beautiful and quieter part of the National Park. Situated at the end of a mile long private drive and with its own six acre private landscaped gardens Wood Hall allows you and your guests to truly relax and enjoy the peace and tranquility of your surroundings.

Wood Hall is a few miles from popular walking destinations like the Northern Wainwright Mountains, Crummock water, Buttemere and Loweswater lakes and a five minute drive from the market town of Cockermouth, meaning all local amenities are on your doorstep.

Ground Floor

Wood Hall’s conservatory with floor to ceiling windows, is the ideal place to sit and look out at the beautiful Lake District landscape as well as down at the impressive Wood Hall Gardens below. The conservatory leads into a large open plan sitting/dining room meaning the whole room benefits from the magnificent views of the mountains. Surrounding the wood burning stove there are big comfortable sofas and a coffee table hosting a large selection of reading material. The bespoke oak dining table seats eighteen. A state of the art Sonos music system has been installed and can be controlled from any android or smart phone. The open plan nature of this impressive room means it is perfect for large gatherings. All the beautiful wooden furniture has been made by local craftsmen using wood from the area and even Wood Hall Gardens itself.

There are sliding glass doors dividing the sitting/ dining room from the brand new expansive kitchen giving you the option of keeping the kitchen separate – a useful feature if you are using caterers. The kitchen has an electric five oven Aga, a large American fridge/ freezer, a Quooker boiling hot water tap, a double Belfast sink, two dishwashers, a microwave, a coffee machine and toaster. The door in the kitchen opens out to a large kitchen garden which guests are invited to help themselves to. There is also a gas BBQ and outdoor dining area so on finer evenings you can enjoy eating outside whilst admiring the views that surround Wood Hall.

From the sitting/ dining room you go through the to a spacious hallway where there is a cloakroom just under the stairs.

On the other side of the hallway there is a large informal TV room which  has a cozy wood burning stove and a 40 inch flatscreen TV with Sky channels and a DVD player. There are large comfortable sofas and a wide selection of DVDs. There is also a 7ft pool table as well as a selection of board games and a large bookshelf containing books of all genres.

Next to the TV room is a boot room with plenty of storage for boots and coats and a utility room with sink, separate washing machine and tumble drier.
